Linux: Run as Non-Root Daemon

Unread post by Convergence »

I followed the directions found at the archwiki for Subsonic (I can't post the URL because I'm a new user) to install and run Subsonic as a non-root user. Then I found out about Madsonic, and attempted those same instructions to run as a non-root user. Unfortunately, it doesn't work (I don't know why, I think that madsonic uses the same directories that Subsonic uses, and the one file edit seemed right), I have to run as root, which seems unwise. I'll add the information to the archwiki if someone can help me.
Thanks in advance.

i soved this by looking in the previous builds and realizing the build two before has a .deb package which when "sudo dpkg -i <the build.deb>", it DOES set up the boot-time service...

i just haven't figured out how to apply the subsequent build over top of it. meaning i don't want to break it by doing it wrong, so until i see clear instructions for upgrading, i will not do it.

If it's as simple as running the script in the new build, i'll do it.
